Bosko then raises his word and says the famous Musketeers line, "All for One and One for All", and the musketeers sing a song about it. Bosko then draws out his sword, and tries to break a table leg, but instead the blade gets twisted on the leg. Bosko pulls the sword out, and it looks like a cork opener, and he uses it to unscrew the cork of a champagne bottle. The bottle says "New Deal - 3.2%" (which according to TZ says that it was part of a deal that President Franklin Roosevelt as part of his promise for policies, and it happened at the end of the "prohibition". Bosko then brings along a glass of beer, and guzzles down the beer in one of the first musketeer's mouth (Athos), the 2nd musketeer (Amos) then lips his lips as if there is some type of assembly in this. The last musketeer (Andy) then does a "swallow" intimidation, and it is a fine gag - but I've seen it somewhere before in one of their cartoons. Wouldn't it be funnier if one of them burped? Anyway, their entertainment business managed to entertain the audience, and we see some bizarre Harman-Ising gags used as part of an applause like a man that honks his chicken like a horn??
A door opens, and the crowd of people in the pub see Honey approach (and she's wearing modern clothing on?). Anyway, she shouts to her audience "Here I am you lucky people?" - Lucky, huh? How lucky? All of her audiene enjoy her tap-dancing performance that she performs (although it doesn't seem very exciting to look at) - and I think Bob McKimson did that scene, comparing to what his Honey looked like in Bosko in Person. Bosko is all "awe" about Honey's dancing and even asks the guy next to him, "Boy, ain't she keen?", and pats him on the back with his false teeth coming out - Ha ha, now that was something amusing.
Bosko then raises his sword with courage, and Honey runs up to admire him - and we cut back to a different background, with Bosko's usual outfit on, and the sword fades into an umbrella. Honey says, "Aw, Bosko - I don't believe that?" with Bosko's reply "Was you dere, Charlie?" and it is a dated reference from a radio character played by Jack Pearl - and that's all folks.
Overall, this cartoon was very boring and it was basically a singing and dancing routine. In fact, the villain was very close to have captured Honey, but all we got instead was a very tedious sword fight sequence, which was just as bad as seeing the villain trying to ruin the picture. It seemed very low-budget in my opinion, and it reminded me of a reused story version of Bosko's Knight Mare but done differently. Well, with this Bosko cartoon now reviewed, we only have one more Bosko cartoon to review in this challenge, and also two more in the Harman-Ising era! Stay tuned and keep commenting!
